Very small stall in Londonís best place for food - Borough Market. The selection is the best in town - hundreds of beers, lots of tough finds and very good on Belgian beers, stocking the larger bottle sizes. I was there just before xmas with a friend shopping for German beer for his dad as a gift. Although they were very busy, the staff had time to help select and explain each choice. Prices can be higher than other retailers, but the stock and expertise are deep. I work nearby, so Iím there alot! London has many good wine and spirit retailers, but apart from this place is let down for beers. Adding to this review - Utobeer is strong on Belgian beer, not a all-inclusive but dozens of beers in 75cl bottles, and a good Lambic selection. German beer isnít so well represented, only about 2 dozen brewers products on the shelves. Add in a shelf of intresting beer from around the world, four brews from Brouwerij ít IJ from Holland and its well worth a visit. If your a tourist looking for UK beers this isnít the best place, it seems to mainly focus on imports (to the UK). Let me reiterate - the staff are knowledgable and helpfull. If your after import beers, this is the best shop in London - no question. My only problem with it is the donít do glassware.

Nice little shop nicely placed a few meters from Market Porter. Found 2 beers from Mauritius, so the visit payed off. Could have taken 20 - 30 beers off the shelves, I havnít tried, but the new limitations on what to carry on a flight, made a buy impossible. Highly recommended though.

Nice location in the Borough Market, but somewhat cramped. Very good service from the staff, who are genuinely friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. The selection is small, but good. You can sometimes find real UK rarities, as well as some US beers.

I was really surprised to see how small Londonís best beer store really is. The place is fun, the owner is really knowledgeable and wants to help you. However the beer selection is not that impressive with about 100 English micros and maybe a bit more imported (mainly Belgium). No rare find, a Cantillon Gueuze is about as wild as it gets. Iím used to limited beer selection since in Canada it is not an open market. However just about every USA city with 500,000 people have better beer selection than that and this is the best beer store in a 12.5 million people agglomerate (and only opened fridays and saturdays!!!) For tourists itís a fun shopping experience because it is in the cool Borough Market. But the beer selection itself is mainly interesting to London locals. Most European/American tourists will find a better imported selection where they live. Some of their English micros are interesting to tourists but for that Iíd recommend Real Ale Limited over Utobeer.

Beautiful stand in the heart of the Borough Market. Good assortment even if mostly beers come from Belgium. Available also beers coming from unusual and rare countries (I have acquired also from Kenya and from Mozambique). Cordial and helpful staff with the foreigner. In the vicinities of the "Market Porter" and "The Southwark Tavern". To visit absolutely.

I wanted to buy a few things here, but my baggage was already full from my time in western Europe... I had to pass on the Lou Pepe Geuze for £8.50 ($16 US), as well as the Meantime IPA and Porter... some things I really wanted. Ended up only buying a ginger soda to drink while waiting for the Market Porter to open (I was dehydrated). Otherwise, an excellent shop, with a decent lambic and Belgian selection, as well as some bottles from countries that I wanted.

Pretty good selection of beers, and the only place where I could find a J.W. Lees.
The owner was so friendly that once accepted a mail order and left the bottles to pick up at the nearby Market Porter.

Being a market stall, there is no doorman who might turn away tourists (assuming tourism is a bad thing?). For what its worth I live locally & have found the staff very helpful and knowledgeable. They are very enthusiastic & not too precious, despite having a deep cellar.The best beers are not always on display- not surprising considering the place is open plan. Fantastic!
